Best Ways to Sell Broken Non Running Cars

Cars are ubiquitous in our modern life. They facilitate easy transportation of people and goods and they come in just about every shape, size, and color you can think of. Nearly everybody has access or ownership to one car at some point in their life.

Best cordless drills 2019

Best car wheel wax and sealant 2019

Which is the best spray-on car wheel sealant treatment to keep brake dust and grime at bay?

Cleaning wheels is one of the trickier valeting jobs. The grime is baked on, the cleaners used are often hazardous and the surfaces complex and tricky to access, so any help has to be good. This used to be done by wheel waxes in much the same way as paintwork is protected, but the arrival of sealants has moved the game on.

Drivers can expect the latest products to keep working for months rather than Continue reading “Best car wheel wax and sealant 2019”

We drive three early versions of the new Peugeot 2008 SUV, including the all-electric e-2008

We were invited to Peugeot HQ on the outskirts of Paris to drive early prototype versions of the new Peugeot 2008 SUV with all three powertrains.

It certainly feels more like an SUV from behind the wheel with the large bonnet and high-up driving position (although you actually sit lower than in the old car). The new 3D iCockpit is a highlight, prioritising information at the front of the Continue reading “New Peugeot 2008 prototype review”

The new Peugeot 2008 gets a look inspired by the larger 3008, while the new all-electric e-2008 joins the line-up with a 193-mile range

This is the new Peugeot 2008 – a small SUV that hopes to emulate the sales success of its superstar sibling, the 3008. Not wanting to mess with a winning formula for Peugeot, the 2008 offers ‘the spirit of the 3008’ according to Guillaume Clerc, project leader for the new 2008 and 208.
